Bruschetta Chicken Skillet

Tonight I found a recipe on that was so easy and fast plus it was delicious! My kids loved it and so did my husband. I will for sure be making this again! Thank you Hunts! The original recipe can be found here
Bruschetta Chicken Skillet
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, drained
3/4 cup shredded Italian blend cheese
1/8 cup dried basil
4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 - 2 tsp garlic powder
thin spaghetti noodles

Stir together drained tomatoes, cheese and basil in a bowl, set aside. Next pound the chicken to 1/2-inch thickness. This can be done using a meat mallet, or even a rolling pin. Top the chicken evenly with the tomato mixture, pressing onto the chicken. Combine tomato sauce and garlic powder in large skillet; add chicken. Bring sauce to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in centers (165°F). Serve over cooked thin spaghetti noodles. Enjoy.

Tangy Grilled Chicken Salad

I have decided I would like to start feeding my family healthier food. We have decided to start by cutting out high fructose corn syrup and food dyes. We also want to add more fresh ingredients to our meals. We thought a fresh salad would be a great place to start. We happened to stumble upon Tangy Ranch Chicken recipe on the back of the mustard container. We decided to turn this into a salad and it was delicious! My mom brought the lettuce straight from her garden- yum!

Tangy Ranch Chicken
2/3 cup Ranch dressing
1/3 cup FRENCH'S® Classic Yellow® Mustard
3 tbsp. brown sugar
4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts

Mix salad dressing, mustard and sugar. Pour sauce over chicken. Marinate chicken in refrigerator for 30 min. Grill chicken 10 to 15 min. until done.
